DRAW WHAT YOU SEE: The Life and Art of Benny Andrews
A children's book by Kathleen Benson
Published by Clarion Books

A love of art and dreams of a life beyond that of his sharecropper parents allowed Benny Andrews to escape the poverty and social injustices of the rural south and become a groundbreaking visual artist, author, activist, and teacher who is widely considered to be one of the most important African-American painters of the twentieth century. This moving picture book, gorgeously illustrated with Andrews' own work, tells his story.
